The End Is Nigh will launch for Switch on December 12, publisher Nicalis announced. In North America, it will be available as both a physical and digital release. In Europe, it will only be available digitally. It will cost $29.99 / €29.99.
First-print copies of the physical edition will include the game card, a full-color instruction booklet, and a squishy Ash toy made of sticky silicone.
Here’s an overview of the game, via Nicalis’ official page:
The End Is Nigh is a sprawling adventure platformer where the player takes control over Ash, one of few “things” that have “survived” the “end of the world.” Follow Ash as he flops his way through a future of pain and suffering. Feel his stress levels rise as you throw him into an endless swarm of decaying, mutant animal-like creatures and help aid his final epic quest…to simply make a friend (out of pieces of people he finds along his journey).
Oh, also you collect video game cartridges and tumors! If that does anything for ya.
- 600+ levels!
- 12+ explorable chapters!
- 20+ collectible and fully playable mini-game cartridges! (each with their own tiny achievements!)
- 80+ achievements that will make you feel good about yourself
- 100s of collectible little squishy tumors!
- Loads of hidden extras and endings that you will probably see someone else find before you do!
- …and stress!
Nicalis also plans to release a PlayStation 4 version of The End Is Nigh, but a release date has yet to be announced. A PC version is available now via Steam.
